Thursday, 3/22, Little Rock, AR

Celebration of two great report cards by my 6 and 8 year-olds, both who had straight A+'s. Okay my 6 year old actually had all +'s but we treat them as A's in comparison with his sister. Of course a celebration calls for champagne and the Cook's Brut Champagne has been our champagne of choice for sixteen years? or so. In fact it was served at me and #1's wedding many moons ago. Way back then you could get it for $3.99/bottle but even now I was able to pick this one up for $5.99/bottle. I know many of you wine/champagne snobs will claim I don't know what I'm talking about but let me say that I've had Dom on more than one occasion and would still take this over the $100+ bottle any day. After the champagne and Sprite was poured we all toasted the great job accomplished by our two little ones and followed it up with strawberries and whipped cream. I easily gave this one 4 Corkscrews because you cannot beat its taste and flavor and price wise nothing can compete with it. I'm traveling next week and hope to find wines not available here in Arkansas to try and to bring back. As I'll be in family travel mode my posting may be limited, if at all, but upon my return I'll give full reviews on all the many wines I intend on finding and trying while in the Lonestar State. Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often, Drink Wine!

With a recommendation like that, I have to try it (I am always looking for bargain bubbles). We don't get the Cook's up here, but I will try to locate a few bottles on my next trip south. Cheers!
